I trust you are well and enjoying this glorious weather.
Bluelite is participating in the Wacky Rally Barmy to Barcelona 2019. The object is to buy an old banger for under £ 300 and drive it across 9 countries gaining points for challenges as you go. I think it is something like the Top Gear challenges. http://www.wackyrally.co.uk/barmy-barcelona-2019
The route is 1500 miles, through one of the Alps highest passes, French Riviera, Costa Brava and finally ending in Barcelona, where they leave the car.
Steve and John have gone in the attached vehicle (you also had to custom it and they are dressing up as well – more points J) no air conditioning!!! There is around 65 cars taking part, festivals organised and accommodation, so all being well it should be great fun.
We do hope to see them back next week, they do not have a plan B so it could be a long walk to Barcelona if they break down. It is just a little bit of fun – I hope!
Maybe next year there might be a few from the Business Park that would want to join us.
I will let you know how they got on – there are prizes for the winner.

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
